However the medium always poured restrictions over the size of the attached file.

Gmail Raised The Size Limit Of Attached Files

While this may be a one sided thing, but we’re still glad to receive emails with size more than 25MB.

So what does this mean in practical terms? The update simply depicts that  users will be able to send hi-res photos, photoshop photos, presentations and much more. At this point in time, not all users have access to the update, but the company announced that the update will expand to all the end-users in the coming three days. If you want to try it out for yourself, do keep an eye out for when it is available at your end.

However, since Google’s allotted space for an average user is not infinite,  there is a minor drawback for the average user. Google allots fixed space for users and receiving larger sized files will eat up more storage. So if you’re sending multiple larger attachments do take note that the storage would eventually be filled.

At this point in time, you can only receive files as big as 50MB, which means that if you’re sending a file, you will be restricted to the 25MB limit as of yet. However, probably in the near future, Google will allow users to send large files. Gmail is one of the most favorite medium for users to send files from one person to the other. It’s good to see the company finally increasing the size limit of received emails.
